How old should children be before they stop riding in car booster seats?
Asked at Borders, 700 N.H. on June 29, 2006
“It seems like by the time they’re 6 or 7, they shouldn’t have to. I had a small child, and they feel a little funny riding in one when they’re 7 or 8 years old.”
“I thought it was 7 to 9. We’ve got a 5-month-old at home, but my wife’s sister has a 2-year-old who just outgrew her old bucket one and moved on to the next stage.”
“I’m going to guess 7, but that’s purely a guess. I don’t even know how tall they are at any certain age.”
“I think it should be based more on height and weight. I’ve got a niece who is 8, but she’s only about 4 feet tall and 40 or 45 pounds.”
